Aiguille du Midi

Christmas Exhibition at the Alan Reed Studio & Gallery in Ponteland

Christmas Exhibition Preview Weekend 5th & 6th December

Tuesday to Saturday 9:30am -5:00pm

Continues until 24th December 2015

Earlier this year we had a family holiday in Chamonix, France with our daughter and grandchildren. We took two trips up the spectacular Aiguille du Midi which we would gaze at every day from our apartment in Chamonix.

On each trip up this dramatic peak, accessed by cable car, I did a sketchbook watercolour, one of Mont Blanc, the other seen below, looking across the vast expanse of mountain peaks that seemed to go on for ever. The sketchbook painting became the catalyst for this 16″ x 12″ studio watercolour above, which can be seen at our Christmas Exhibition.

The preview weekend starts 5th & 6th December. The Christmas Exhibition continues until 24th December.

From Aiguille du Midi you also get a wonderful view of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps. I enjoyed painting these scenes so much that I intend to develop more of my sketchbook paintings from Chamonix into larger works.
